Top AI Conferences 2020
Yesterday you had to concentrate on the road as much as possible and at the same time switch the gearbox correctly in order to drive confidently to your destination. Today, just turn on the autopilot. This is made possible by AI.
For many drivers, it looks like a simple click of a button. But behind it lies thousands of hours of testing and development, problem solving, and quick learning.
Most importantly, this is not the work of one, or even hundreds of people. This is the achievement of thousands of professionals from around the world. And in 2020, they will again share their own observations and ideas regarding the implementation of AI in our world.
More than 10 years ago, the world saw the film "Back to the Future", with automatic lacing of sneakers, a jacket that itself chooses the size and a leash that is programmed for dog walking. Today, some of these things are real, and some are only in development. But the bottom line is that we are clearly moving towards a complete transformation of our lives.
We got this opportunity thanks to digital technology. But even they are outdated (if we talk about the initial definition). A new era is not just the use of digital technology, but the full replacement of a person in some things. For example, painting a car now only requires setting parameters.
Artificial intelligence is an integral part of the future. For some people, this is already part of the current time. And all conferences that are dedicated to this topic are aimed at training leaders and ordinary employees of different brands. But in addition, even those people who have nothing to do with the development of new technologies should receive knowledge at conferences. After all, they have to use these innovations.
It is impossible to escape from evolution. The future has already come. The purpose of such conferences is to build a full-fledged ecosystem of artificial intelligence around the world, so that people can safely exist in a new era.
